Vail, Colorado: Nine Inches of Powder

Need proof that winter isn't over yet? Here are shots from Vail this weekend—when nine of inches of snow fell on Friday night, dawning bluebird Saturday and Sunday. The best part: After skiing powder, you can take a shot of Limoncello from an ice luge at the top of Vail's Blue Sky Basin.

Wyoming's Grand Targhee has received 10 inches in the past 24 hours, and 27 inches in the past week. And, thanks to the recent big snows, they re-opened the Blackfoot lift on Wednesday and will run it straight through Easter Sunday 4/4 before closing down for the season.

Dumps of the Week

It is still dumping snow across the west. Tahoe is getting hammered with feet upon feet of snow. Grand Targhee, Snowbird, Silverton Mountain, Alyeska—they're all getting snow. Winter isn't over—get out and ski powder while you still can.
